Daralyn Durie, Mark Lemley, Michael Page and Ragesh Tangri started kicking the idea around almost 20 years ago, when all four were students at UC Berkeley School of Law. They’d start their own law firm together, someday.

Durie, Tangri and Page became partners there; Lemley, an intellectual property professor at Stanford Law School, was of counsel; and all of them helped build one of the country’s most potent IP litigation groups, with clients like Genentech Inc., Google Inc. and Comcast Corp. But the idea of starting their own firm never faded.
